About us

Holy Technologies is the developer of a machine learning-enhanced additive manufacturing system for composite components. The company helps innovation leaders across industries to make their structural carbon fiber components up to 30% lighter, 50% cheaper and 100% recyclable.

The technology addresses 80% of the components in the multi-billion dollar composite market, from carbon fiber to glas fibers, and from sport equipment, medical, automotive, maritime, UAVs and aircraft to wind turbine blades. Holy already works with global innovation leaders, from the automotive and medical industries.

Mobility hardware has a weight problem. By reducing weight, we can enhance battery performance and increase payloads, allowing vehicles—whether terrestrial, aerial, or maritime—to move across greater distances with less energy consumption. Composites are best suited for the task. Yet, we need a fresh category of composite manufacturing: one that's radically more affordable and sustainable. Radical improvement will make composites viable for a much broader array of applications, thereby substituting heavier materials, and triggering a dramatic lightweighting impact that can reach Co2-savings in the magnitude of gigatons.
